The former governor of Kano State, Engineer Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, in response to Ganduje’s comments, has said that the current governor and his allies will have many regrets at the end of his tenure.
The current governor, Abdullahi Ganduje had said that Kwankwaso is a “clueless politician’’ who “does not want any other person to shine”.
Kwankwaso responded to this during a radio programme aired by many local radio stations across the state, stating that Ganduje is running his administration on deception and falsehood.
“They will definitely regret at the end of their tenure, they will be saying had we know we would have handed over to the winner in 2019,” he said.
Ganduje, while receiving the state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Rabi’u Sulaiman Bichi, who defected to the APC,said that Kwankwaso is nurturing an ambition to contest for the next president of Nigeria, Daily Trust reported.
“I know Kwankwaso more than any other person. He is a kind of person that knows everything, knows better than any other person and who is self-centred. Whatever this man asks you to do or to pursue will be for his own benefit, not yours.
“I know all his political tricks, deceptiveness and doggedness but I endured him for all the years we were together. He will never appreciate you for whatever you did to him, be it big or small,” he said. In his remarks, Bichi said their decision to cross carpet to the ruling party APC was unanimously taken in response to Ganduje’s invitation to the opposition to join hands with the government in moving the state forward.
“We believe in Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje’s genuine commitment in developing the state, that is why we resolved to join hands with him to develop our dear state.
“So we are today answering the call of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje. The infrastructural development we are seeing all over the state and other human-centred policies like free and compulsory primary and secondary education are some of the major reasons that informed our decision to honour the invitation,” he added.
